We are currently finishing fitting the WiFi controller to the robot. This will permit us to control B9 by a remote Tablet PC and use Visual AI software to enable  autonomous behaviors. 

BUZZED ABOUT THE MOON LANDING

Team Filo Volunteered on the USS HORNET's Celebration of the Recovery of the the Apollo 11 Astronauts.
We prepared an exhibit with a Gemini Jetpack and Apollo Astronaut. Starting with Video Production Company's  surplus moosuit costume,  We added fittings, hoses, flaps, a  cooling garment and a posable 1/2 mannequin to recreate Buzz Aldrin on the moon We had a Great Time Aboard the HORNET and got to meet Buzz Aldrin!

We are also making a 1/2 scale Lunar Module  "Face"  This can be used as a Backdrop, and Simulator Housing.
